As a man with various projects on his hands, Ghostface Killah often has fans wondering about more than one release. The emcee who just dropped Twelve Reasons to Die with Adrian Younge earlier this year and is now touring and prepping for other releases. During a recent interview, Ghost revealed more information regarding his project with MF DOOM, his upcoming Supreme Clientele Presents…Blue & Cream: The Wally Era album and the 20th anniversary Wu-Tang Clan reunion project, which he says he doesn’t want to rush.
“I just gave DOOM, I gave him all my records,” Ghost explained in an interview with TheNEHipHop. “DOOM likes to take his time. He’s in London. He don’t live in the U.S. no more. So he just be doin’ a lot of shit. I told him, ‘Yo, man! The people want this shit, yo! Yo, what the fuck, man?’ So, he sent like another six beats. I smashed them out. So, I guess at the end of the year, I guess he’ll release them. It’s in his hands. I don’t know what he wants to do with the music but he got it.”
Aside from this, of course, Ghost is prepping for the sequel to Supreme Clientele, a project now known to be Supreme Clientele Presents…Blue & Cream: The Wally Era.
“You know how I do. I’m goin’ in. It’s gon’ be bananas. It’s gon’ be crazy,” he said about that project. “That’s nothing to make for me. Just give me some time with the right beats and I could go in. Y’all gon’ love that one when that hits the fan. I want to do it this year because I’ve been sitting on it for a minute. I’ve just been waiting for the perfect timing. That’s all.”
Wu-Tang Clan fans can also hope for a Wu-Tang Clan reunion album this year. However, according to Ghost, it may or may not drop in 2013. For Ghost, he says, the only important thing is making sure the music is “right.”
“We’ve got plans to give the people another album. But we all decided, just because we came out in November in ’93 don’t mean that we have to drop in November . I would say, if the music is not right, let’s not give it to the people until it’s right. That’s me. I don’t want to rush nothin’. Then you start hearin’ a bunch of bullshit. That’s where I’m at with mines though.”

Wu-Tang is currently also preparing for Rock the Bells, a festival that they will be co-headlining this year. The festival has been the topic of discussion since it was announced that it would include a virtual performance of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Likened to a hologram but said to only “look and feel like what a lot of people say is a hologram,” this will also tie into a separate virtual performance of Eazy-E with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony that will also happen at the festival. The plans have been criticized by O.D.B.’s widow and son but supported by fellow members of the Wu, including U-God. Recently Rock the Bells announced that despite any comments to the contrary, the performances will “absolutely” take place.
